As it turned out, only one deal was made at the NFL trade deadline, and this was it:
The idea of the Bengals trading for Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Isaasc Sopoaga was floated earlier, but that won’t happen after the New England Patriots just snatched him:

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday that Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen could be available for the right price, which is believed to be higher than a third-round draft pick because the team will get a compensatory third-rounder if Allen leaves via free agency.
NFL.com’s Gil Brandt is reporting that the Denver Broncos are trying to get Allen before the deadline. Brian McIntyre writes that the Broncos cap situation would require Allen to restructure his contract slightly to make a deal work.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Sunday that Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry will be in play for a trade this offseason, because his salary-cap number jumps to $18 million next season, and the Cardinals could save $8 million by trading him, plus get some draft picks. It’s unlikely though they’ll trade him by today’s deadline.
